Putting a course description together is like doing a crossword puzzle: Some parts are easy to fill in; some are difficult; and later information may invalidate earlier choices. The final course description should tell you:
WHY the course is needed and should include the course objectives; the expected benefits—for the organization, learners and their supervisors, colleagues, and for organizational clients or customs; and the estimated dollar value of these benefits.
WHO is involved (job titles, number of people) in the course's analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. The who should include:
who is to receive training
prerequisites or entry requirements, if any
availability of learners for training
